Sleep without trazadone

We are on similar paths but I stopped taking the trazadone first before attempting the lexapro. I have just started the process for lexapro so any advice would be appreciated! I had been on each for about 6 years.

As for the trazadone, I started by taking half my dosage each night for 2 weeks to see how I felt. After that I stopped completely and took magnesium citrate and zinc before bed. It has worked great and helps calm nerves before bed. I sleep through the night and am happy I do not rely on the trazadone anymore.

For the lexapro, I started on 10mg and my first cut was 5 mg. After that, I decreased by 10% every 4-6 weeks. If I felt bad, I’d wait longer for the cut. I allowed myself bad days & would hang out on the couch & just relax, not my typical day!!!
